Lemon Glazed Funfetti Cupcakes

I bought this Halloween funfetti cake mix way back when the stores first brought out all of the Halloween stuff. Was planning on making them for our church Primary class (10&11-year-olds) but we haven't had class all month because they've been preparing for the Primary Sacrament Program...and now it's almost Halloween so I decided to just make them for no reason.
Unfortunately the hubby doesn't really like using this as my inspiration, I made the cake mix into lemon cupcakes. They turned out soooo good~~ I love lemon~

Lemon Glazed Funfetti Cupcakes

1 box funfetti cake mix
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk (I substituted by putting 3/4 T lemon juice in a measuring cup, adding milk to the 3/4 c point, and letting sit for five minutes)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup light sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

Lemon Glaze:

3 T fresh lemon juice (I ran out so it ended up half fresh, half bottled)
About 1-1/2 c powdered sugar

Vanilla Frosting: (this is the Sprinkles recipe)

1 cup softened butter
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt 


Preheat oven to 350F. 
Whisk all wet ingredients together in a large bowl, then stir in the cake mix. 
Line jumbo cupcake tin with liners and fill them 3/4 of the way full with cake mix.
Bake for about 22-27 minutes. (If doing normal-size cupcakes do 15-20 minutes.)

In a small bowl, pour in the lemon juice first and then stir in the powdered sugar until smooth.

Beat together the butter, sugar, and salt.
Add the milk and vanilla, then beat for just a few more minutes (about 3).
Cover the frosting if not using right away.

Let the cupcakes cool just a bit. While they are still slightly warm, use a toothpick to poke holes into each cupcake, and pour the glaze on.
After the cupcakes are cool and the glaze is set, you can pipe the frosting on.

I topped them with a bit of coconut~
